 Answers to the Questions Most Often asked about CTEC

Q. I registered for next years programs, now what? 
A. We are going to look at what you asked for and see if there is room for you in the class. If there is room, we want to make sure you have met any requirements or prerequisites. If all is a go, we sign you up for the class and you are in. If an issue arises, we may contact you or you may hear from the CTE coordinator in your home high school.

We will also block out a period of time on your schedule so you will need to fill in the remainder of classes at your home high school during the unscheduled free time. If you or your parent have questions please feel free to contact us.
